March 4, 2016, Prescott- Today marks the eve of two anniversaries of import in my life. On March 5, 2004, a child was born, in a country far from here. He became my sponsored child, in 2011. On the same date, also in 2011, my long-suffering and beloved wife cast her burden, and became my spirit guide. One is now 12 years of age, the other, a spirit gone beyond time.
As I write this, there is a stirring, outside. A door opens and shuts- most likely my ephemeral neighbour, poking about, catching the night air. On the morning that Penny went to the realm of stars, son and I were detoured by a street renovation project. We got to hospice about three minutes after she had passed over. We did see, however, a stirring of leaves and debris, spiraling upward, on an otherwise still morning. We went inside, and found her body, still warm to the touch, but sans pulse. She had indeed left, three minutes earlier.
When one is at the threshold of something entirely new, there is an individualized level of trepidation. There is also an individualized level of hope and joy. I generally face the day with more of the latter. March 5, 2011 was an exception, because my beloved’s spiritual energy, dense energy, filled the room, as I awoke. Nothing before or since has made its presence known, in quite that extraordinary a manner. I knew what was in store, and moved along through the day, in a very heavy flow.
She will be with me, always. I fully intend to visit my sponsored child and his family, in the summer of 2017. If all goes well, I will also pay a visit to one of our friends, in a nation that faces the challenges of climate change. I know Penny would approve, as she sent me messages about my earlier journeys, well in advance of their having transpired.
Standing at a threshold, my soulmate wraps me in confidence and blessings.
